Kuwaiti MP com­mends deep ties with Turkey

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Chair­man of Kuwait-Turkey Par­lia­men­tary Friend­ship com­mit­tee, MP Ja­maan Al-Har­bash un­der­lined Mon­day the deep re­la­tions be­tween Turkey and Kuwait and their peo­ple. Har­bash, in a meet­ing with chair­man of the Turk­ish-Kuwaiti par­lia­men­tary friend­ship com­mit­tee Mekael Ar­salan, re­called Turkey’s sup­port for Kuwait’s just causes dur­ing the 1990 Iraqi in­va­sion and oc­cu­pa­tion of Kuwait. He also noted Kuwait’s sup­port for the demo­crat­i­cally-elected gov­ern­ment of Turkey dur­ing last July’s failed coup at­tempt.

Ar­salan said Kuwait was play­ing ‘strate­gic’ roles in the re­gion, and con­trib­uted to se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity of the area. He called on par­lia­men­tar­i­ans in the two coun­tries to con­front com­mon threats, as well as pro­mote the bi­lat­eral re­la­tions and co­op­er­a­tion. Ar­salan said ex­change of vis­its by lead­ers of Turkey and Kuwait would boost in­vest­ment and eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion. Har­bash is lead­ing a del­e­ga­tion that in­cludes MPs Adel Al-Damkhi, Ab­dul­lah Al-Enezi and Nayef Al-Ajmi. —KUNA
